Build the future of ed tech at DevCon
Interact with our architects and designers to get answers to questions like: What does the next generation of Blackboard Learn look like?
How can I integrate other technologies into Blackboard Learn?
DevCon is an annual event designed to inform the Developers and System Administrators of the latest technical information surrounding Blackboard Learn, as well as to provide the opportunity to interact with peers from around the region and Blackboard. Whether you have never been to this event before, or you are a seasoned veteran, this event has something to offer your unique needs and requirements.
The event itself has continued to grow and improve each year, and 2017 will be the best ever! Attendees should expect to learn the latest information about the Learn REST APIs, the new Collaborate Ultra REST APIs, Caliper Analytics, and much more. There will be presentations, hands-on workshops, and of course, plenty of opportunities to ask questions and network.
Talk nerdy at DevCon with detailed technical conversations for system administrators, IT professionals and developers. Understand the future of integration development via REST APIs, then continue to develop and expand your knowledge of existing technologies like Building Blocks.
We heard the applause when we asked, “should we make DevCon even more technical?” So get ready for it. We’ll be writing code, working on customizations, and answering your most technical questions. DevCon is the perfect fit for beginners and experts alike, so come prepared to ask your newbie questions or share your stories.
Hear how your peers have leveraged commercial and homegrown integrations, web services, open standards, and other Blackboard Learn product capabilities. DevCon sessions focus on integrating campus systems, extending new functionality, and meeting an institution’s specific requirements.
DevCon brings together a unique group of developers, system administrators, and IT professionals from across from across Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect over your common challenges and share your creative solutions.
